Mayweather Confident Floyd Sr. Will Fix Past Mistakes

By Luis Sandoval

The Mayweather-Guerrero All Access series reminds you of a great boxing fight; the more rounds that go by, the better it gets. The same is true for this series as it’s only getting better with each episode with tonight’s easily being the best so far. It was a great blend of information and entertainment from both fighters and their respective camps as it also reminds you how close we are to this mega match.

If you missed the Floyd who likes to trash talk, then you were in for a nice treat as the episode opens up with Floyd ripping Guerrero about contradicting himself with his religion and his actions. Throughout this series it’s been the Guerrero’s who have done most of the talking but it was finally Mayweather’s turn to let loose. If that wasn’t enough, he and his team enjoyed the Ghostbusters theme song as they basically said they weren’t “afraid of no Ghost”.

We also got to meet Mayweather’s team who he credits for his success. Nate Jones stands out amongst the group as he’s been Floyd’s friend for two decades and wears the body suit that Mayweather pounds on day in and day out during training. Jones admits the punches are definitely felt and he’s even urinated blood before; a true testament not only to his dedication, but the work Mayweather puts on. Mayweather also touches on the relationship with his father and uncle who he doesn’t want being at odds with each other but working together.

At camp Guerrero, Robert gets ready for his media day as he gets a haircut at a local Las Vegas barbershop. Guerrero promises his barber he’ll be back in September to give Mayweather his rematch after he defeats him. Media days are one of the vigorous requirements of a fight of this magnitude and as Guerrero arrives, the gym is packed.

He assures he’s mentally ready to deal with these demands as he participates in a public prayer and answers endless questions.

One of the highlights of the show was the return of Floyd’s fiancée Miss Jackson. After speculation on their relationship from 30 Days In May, Miss Jackson sets the record straight and says they don’t have an open relationship; they have an understanding. She admits their relationship is unique and you get to see a great side of it as they take a bike ride and make a bet to race home. It was a nice look into their bond and despite any shortcomings, Mayweather assures they love each other.

Robert’s relationship with his father is also examined as Ruben talks about his son’s only loss in his career. In a move they thought would benefit a young Guerrero, Ruben was replaced by a more experienced trainer and it proved to be disastrous as Guerrero lost to Gamaliel Diaz. Ruben was brought back and in the rematch, Guerrero destroyed Diaz and has not lost again with his father in his corner. Most would tell you a father as a trainer doesn’t always work but in this case, Ruben is a vital part of his son’s success.
Mayweather’s fight with Cotto is also revisited as Mayweather admits he brought his father Floyd Mayweather Sr to help fix some of the mistakes he made in that fight.

Floyd even gave himself a D+ for his performance against Cotto and revealed for the next 30 months, Floyd Sr. will be there to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

The show ends with Mayweather throwing an All White Party Appreciation Party for his team. For Guerrero, its dealing being away from his family and missing out on moments he’d love to share with his kids. Guerrero also wants Mayweather to keep his promise to stand toe to toe and you hope Ruben Guerrero is joking when he says they will abandon the jab and go to war.

All Access continues to deliver with this series. While 24/7 or other All Access series’  in the past begin to fizzle out by the third episode, this series has been the opposite as it’s picking up steam. The fight is less than two weeks away and we still have two more episodes to look forward to.

Grade: 4.5/5

[QUOTE=Dr Rumack;13290780]I think it's just Floyd acknowledging what a lot of his more demented fanboys couldn't, that Cotto forced him into a fight he didn't want last year, and it wasn't a case of Floyd choosing to get cornered against…

[QUOTE=jvsnypes;13290629]I think the key will not be Floyd's legs but his punch selection. If he tries to pot shot Guerrero, then it will be a long grueling night for him. But if he throws combos and bang the body, he…

[QUOTE=Main Source;13290538]If you count being hit by jabs as "being beat up", then yes. Floyd is so good defensively that a bloody nose is considered being "beat up". Cotto's jabs are like right hands. They do damage. Robert doesn't have…

[QUOTE=Evol;13291482]Hahaha forgot that part, jr also said that's why everyone left u, Oscar, hatton lol..[/QUOTE] That whole rant was irrelevant though. People tend to go for the jugular in a fierce argument, so Floyd hit him low there. Even when…
